DAY #37: Thursday, October 31st
40 Days for Life: September 25th-November 3rd 

Dear Pam, 

Just two days ago, faithful prayer volunteers were braving the weather to stand for life outside of Planned Parenthood when, around 11:35 am, an ambulance (the second one seen since the start of the 40 Days Campaign!) pulled into the parking lot of Planned Parenthood. Three male EMT's carried a young woman out on a stretcher with a sheet covering her face. The ambulance stayed till around 11:49 am, and then drove off without its lights on.

911
 

"As we reflect on this terrible tragedy, I can't help but wonder, how many more ambulances will it take to make people see the truth about abortion? How many more mothers and fathers will be made to suffer the emotional and physical consequences of abortion before it is brought to end in our state, nation, world? How many more souls, hearts, and lives will be sacrificed for the sake of  Planned Parenthood's 'bottom line'? 

Yet, in spite of everything, we hold onto the hope that the Lord will continue to work in these dark moments to bring about salvation, such as is shown in the reflection, at the bottom of this email, that was shared by a volunteer who was present on Tuesday to witness this whole scene. 

For all those injured spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically by the  tragedy of abortion, Lord God, hear our prayer.

Blessings,

Brian Westbrook
Executive Director
Coalition For Life St. Louis

Missouri Right to Life received the following alert from National Right to Life:

Urge Congress to end abortion-to-birth in the nation's capital!

Click here to take action now! 

WASHINGTON (May 8, 2013) -- Pro-life members of Congress, led by Congressman Trent Franks (R-Az.) and Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah), with strong backing from the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), have re-introduced legislation to curb an ongoing scandal in our nation's capital:  The entire abortion law was repealed, and abortion has been made legal -- for any reason whatever -- right up until the moment of birth.

This appalling situation would be addressed by the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act  (H.R. 1797, S. 886).   The bill would prohibit abortion in the District after 20 weeks fetal age, unless the mother's life is endangered -- based on compelling scientific evidence that by 20 weeks (if not earlier), the unborn child is capable of experiencing excruciating pain while being aborted.  During a 2012 hearing on this legislation, Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist, explained to a House panel exactly how second-trimester dismemberment ("D&E") abortions are performed -- to see video of his testimony, click here.  (Warning:  graphic content.)

A recent national poll by The Polling Company found that, after being informed that there is scientific evidence that unborn children are capable of feeling pain at least by 20 weeks, 64% would support a law banning abortion after 20 weeks, unless the mother's life was in danger.   Only 30% said they would oppose such a law.  Click here to read the NRLC release on the poll.  For additional documentation on the pain suffered by unborn children, click here.

Pro-abortion groups and their allies in Congress have made it clear that they intend to try to delay, obstruct, and defeat this bill.  Please use the tool below to send messages to your representative in the U.S. House and to your two U.S. senators, urging them to cosponsor H.R. 1797 or S. 886, if they have not already done so, and to urge its speedy passage!

 To view an up-to-date list of the current co-sponsors of H.R. 1797, arranged by state, click here.  To view an up-to-date list of the current co-sponsors of S. 886, arranged by state, click here.

Missouri Right to Life Press Release

For Immediate Release: March 19, 2013

MO Supreme Court Strikes Down MOSIRA

Missouri Right to Life applauds the Missouri Supreme Court decision announced today upholding a Cole County Circuit Court decision which struck down the 2011 MOSIRA (Missouri Science Innovation and Reinvestment Act) legislation that created an incentive fund for science and technology-based businesses.

Missouri Right to Life, Missouri Roundtable for Life, Citizens of Missouri and Lawyers for Life filed suit against MOSIRA.  “Our suit was based on the language of SB 7 which clearly states that MOSIRA could not go into effect without the passage of SB 8, known as the Aerotropolis bill, during the extraordinary special session.  Since SB 8 did not pass, it was our position that MOSIRA could not go into effect,” said Pam Fichter, President of Missouri Right to Life.

“Missouri Right to Life is very thankful for this decision.  While we know that the court ruled on the constitutional requirement that legislation address only a single subject, they did recognize that SB 7 would not have passed without it’s being tied to SB 8.  Missouri Right to Life is committed to standing against the destruction of innocent human lives through any means, including human cloning and embryonic stem cell research.  The MOSIRA legislation had no protective language to prevent funds from being used for abortion services, human cloning and embryonic stem cell research,” continued Fichter.

“Missouri Right to Life will continue to monitor any attempts to pass similar economic development legislation without pro-life protections.  While we support a strong Missouri economy, we cannot purchase it with the lives of innocent human beings at the earliest stages of development.”    


Missouri Victory for Women and Babies!
SB 793 Becomes Law! 
The following statement can be attributed to Pam Fichter, President of Missouri Right to Life.
Missouri Right to Life applauds Governor Jay Nixon for not vetoing SB793!

During the 2010 Legislative Session, the Missouri Senate and House took up and passed SB 793 requiring that, 24 hours before a woman has an abortion, she be given the opportunity to view an ultrasound, receive information on the development of her baby including the ability to feel pain, alternatives to abortion, and the father’s responsibility under Missouri law.

Today, Governor Nixon has allowed this legislation to become law.  Per the Missouri Constitution, Governor Nixon’s decision to neither veto nor sign the bill is a decision to allow SB 793 to go into effect.  In essence, a non-veto is a win for women in Missouri who will now receive critical information before making an abortion decision.  Because of Governor Nixon’s decision to allow women to be more fully informed, we believe that more expectant mothers will choose life for their babies.  Missouri Right to Life has worked hard for several years to pass this legislation and is very pleased to see it become law.  

SB 793 also prohibits abortion coverage in the insurance exchanges created by the new federal health care reform legislation.  We can’t stop our federal tax dollars from paying for abortion outside of Missouri, but this legislation will help prevent that from happening in Missouri.

We thank Governor Nixon and the Senate and House members who supported this life-saving legislation.
